Zhou worked as a civil servant in Shanghai after getting a bachelor’s degree in Chinese literature from Fudan Univ
ersity. While working this job, she had the chance to embark on her first overseas trip to Tasmania, Australia. 上海夜网女神会所
There, when faced with pristine scenes of n
ature, she finally understood the magnitude of the pollution problem at home. 上海夜网
“It was in Tasmania where I learned that leaves should not be cover
上海夜网ed in dust, that the sky should be blue, that the water should be clear,” she said.
The trip sparked something within her, and she resigned from her job as soon as she returned, joining a
n environmental protection organization to protect bar-headed geese at the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. 上海夜网女神会所
Two years later, in 2013, Zhou followed her husband to the United States, where he was accepte
上海夜网d into Harvard Medical School. There, she continued to work at various nonprofit organizations.
Eager to learn more about how environmental protection organizations operate, Zhou applied for a master’s degree program at
Harvard Kennedy School in 2015. In her application letter, Zhou expressed that she was determined to re 上海夜网女神会所
turn to Shanghai after graduation to create an organization aimed at helping people live in an e
nvironmentally friendly way. She went on to study at the institution on a full scholarship.
上海夜网女神会所Despite friends advising her to begin her career in the United States after graduation, Zhou made good on her promise
and returned to Shanghai in 2016. However, she was sidetracked from her original plan and ended up doing bus
iness related to organic food. It was only when she attempted to sell her organ
ic produce in a residential neighborhood in 2018 that she was reminded of her initial calling. 上海夜网女神会所
While chatting with the head of the neighborhood committee, she learned that in Ma
rch that year the Shanghai municipal government released a plan to implement household waste sorting.

hina and Japan should jointly resist protectionism and uphold mul
上海夜网ilateralism as well as the free trade system in order to repair the broken global
industrial and supply chains, said former vice-premier Zeng Peiyan in Tokyo on Thursday. 上海夜网女神会所
“Trade protectionism had challenged the globalization process of the world and had bee

of the two countries to enhance regional cooperation and reach the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partn

Barry became a hurricane as it was making its final approach toward the Gulf Coa
st onto the southern US state of Louisiana on Saturday morning, according to the NHC. 上海夜网女神会所
Barry is expected to bring dangerous storm surge and heavy rains across the north-central Gulf Coast foll
上海夜网女神会所owing its landfall, mainly due to its slow movement toward the inland region. Residents in the
affected regions who had not been put under voluntary or mandatory evacuation were told to take shelter. 上海夜网
Local governments and residents have geared up for the hurricane. N
ew Orleans and Baton Rouge, the capital city of Louisiana, are among the cities at high risk 上海夜网女神会所
of flooding. Mississippi River is forecast to crest at 19 feet (about 5.8 meters) in New Orleans on Saturday.
In New Orleans, voluntary evacuations have been issued for areas which are not protected by levees. 上海夜网
Both US states of Louisiana and Mississippi have declared state of emergency in advance of Barry’s arrival.
The precise satellite positioning program organized in Hangzhou, East China’s Zhejiang provi
nce, targeting 364 historical buildings in the city’s central area, was completed by the city’s hi上海夜网女神会所
storical building protection center recently, Qianjiang Evening News reported.
By comparing and analyzing multiple satellite images, people can get a more comprehensive understanding of the historical buildings.上海夜网
Although image clarity from different satellites has varied, some images sent back have been quite clear
上海夜网女神会所, according to the report. Roof structures, planting conditions and certain decorative objects in the yards can also be observed.
“Except for the rooftops, the surrounding environment and the conditions of the w
hole area also come with a plain view,” said a staff member with the protection center.上海夜网
Currently, the daily supervision of the city’s historical buildings i

But now, these checks have been supplemented with precise satellite positioning, which enables remote mo
nitoring of the historical buildings and fills in the inspection blanks in time and space.上海夜网
This program also provides reasonable grounds for protective law enforcement.
上海夜网女神会所”(Previously) when our staff members inspected the protection con
ditions, they may not have been able to enter those buildings. Some of them are enclosed so th上海夜网
ey may look normal from the outside, but may have already been pulled down inside,” said a staff member in charge. “B
上海夜网女神会所ut now they can be inspected through images from the satellite and any destructive behavior will be discovered.”
The historical conditions of these buildings in geographical space can also be reviewed back in time via the satellite imagery ‘
’system, which can provide pictures dating back to the early days after the People’s Republic of China was founded.

sed Assange for exposing US atrocities committed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Assange, 47, has denied the sexual misconduct allegations, which he claims are politically motivated.
